trapped in my own mind

Sun, 10/05/2014 - 18:44 -- kaynmay


my body feels warm

the color of my skin changes to red

my heart starts beating f a s t e r

i sense danger

my body wants to me to run away

why don't i just run away


"hi, how are you today?"

just a person

a friend even

so scary, right?



social to be exact

something other people do easily

without even thinking

causes my body to turn on panic mode


i wish i could just be myself

the happy, carefree girl i know i can be

out doing things i love

without all the fear

i can do it

i can escape

i just have to try
